Day 2[SinglePic not found]
This picture was the scene looking from the doorway of the control room at approximately one o’Clock this afternoon. We spent most of yesrtrday setting up the outbard and equipment. we made a drum room with Acoustic pannels, Duvets and Canoe ores!
late last night we set up a small kit (Kick, Snare, Hat, ride, crash) in the vocal booth (which is probably the size of two phone boxes stuck together) and recorded on a tune. this set up worked really well for the track and I really enjoyed myself! one sound in particular which i though was awesome was using an SM58 in a ambient mic position just over the kick and snare (maybe where most rack toms are placed) was sent directly through an old selmar amp which was on a chest of drawers in the big stone room… it sounded amazing! The blend of really tight (phone booth) punchy drums and an old Selmer amp was really cool!
Drums: I used my awesome Birch Premier 20″ x 18″ kick, a lovely crisp, even Brady 14″x 5.5 Australian Hard wood, block built snare with a small TEA towel on the top side as i nice dampener.
Cymbals: Zildjian 22″ K Ride, 12″ K hats and my wickedabo 18″ EFX Crash.
That is all for now!
